Amy Lanford's 3-D Halloween Box

 So in October 2013 I took a class down at my fav scrappin' store in Waxahachie (The Crafty Scrapper). The class was taught by the brilliant Angella Peardon. Now I've taken lots of classes, I always learn something, but never has a class changed the way I look at my art! I was handed a Maya Road tabbed album and Bo Bunny's new Fright Delight line and asked to make a project to display in the store. For a nano second I considered doing another mini album. And then by brain started spinning and I though of how to use the same album and make something 3D. This project was one that was so much fun to make!  What do you think?
So I used two of the pages of the album to create the base that I attached the frame and wheels to.  Covers are my favorite part of any project!
I used more of the leftover album chipboard to put a 3D frame around this photo. I covered the frame in more of the Bo Bunny paper and wrapped Maya Road twine around it. The scroll behind the "Spooky" was covered in a wood grain stencil and filled in with my new favorite thing - Wendy Vecchi embossing paste! That stuff is the bomb!
 I wanted the picture to take center stage on this page so I paired it with a simple homemade embellie and burlap as a background. The spider web is also from the Bo Bunny paper.
This flower was made with one of the Bo Bunny buttons and Maya Road trim! I love the bats on the button.
More of the embossing paste at play here in the background as well as a little wood grain melted acrylic as a frame for the picture.
Yes, my cat gets a Halloween costume each year. I wish I could say he loves it, but can see what he thinks!
More Mr. Kitty Halloween happiness!
I created a pocket in the background paper to tuck away journaling. I like to have one non-picture page in an album to just replicate the freedom the cover gives you with creativity.
Background is again the embossing paste. Love the Bo Bunny trick or treat embellie! And this is my FAVORITE of her costumes ever - even more than the year she was a flower pot!
This album is on display at The Crafty Scrapper! Happy Scrappin'!
Thanks Amy for sharing!
